Session was started with Introduction to Mozilla and why we were here. Students are keenly listening me when Mehul have started to speak, we was very proud that most of all students know about Mozilla but they know if as refer to Firefox but then he have explained them about the difference between them.

IMG_0803

In the picture, it looks mehul was stuck but we was telling students that mehul am not a teacher so there is no need to hesitate, mehul have done that pose like a student when they saw any strict teachers. This looks quit cool.

Then mehul have introduce our team and his self as a Firefox Student Ambassador and give them a detail that what we are doing in Mozilla.

IMG_0805

IMG_0808

IMG_0813

IMG_0815

Students have explained the term computer to their own language, and believe me computer can’t be describe in any one language or word as it can be describe in many language as per the use of person or thinking to use it.

Here mehul can explaining computer in technical word and have described each word of “C-O-M-P-U-T-E-R”,

2. Explain the various networks and their differences and how computers are connected in a network :

      – LAN
      – MAN
      – WAN

IMG_0816

 

Here mehul have started to explain the basic concepts of Networking and their types and I am operating the computer.

Question : What is (Computer) Networking?

Answer :    In the world of computers, networking is the practice of linking two or more computing devices together for the purpose of sharing data. Networks are built with a mix of computer hardware and computer software.

IMG_0817IMG_0819

1st Type : 

LAN – Local Area Network

A LAN connects network devices over a relatively short distance. A networked office building, school, or home usually contains a single LAN, though sometimes one building will contain a few small LANs (perhaps one per room), and occasionally a LAN will span a group of nearby buildings. In TCP/IP networking, a LAN is often but not always implemented as a single IP subnet.

In addition to operating in a limited space, LANs are also typically owned, controlled, and managed by a single person or organization. They also tend to use certain connectivity technologies, primarily Ethernet and Token Ring.

IMG_0821IMG_0822

From here Akash had take our the session, this was his 2nd session, it was short session but he was much better than his last session.

IMG_20150429_101505268_HDR

2nd Type :

MAN – Metropolitan Area Network 

a network spanning a physical area larger than a LAN but smaller than a WAN, such as a city. A MAN is typically owned an operated by a single entity such as a government body or large corporation.

IMG_0823

3rd Type : 

WAN – Wide Area Network

As the term implies, a WAN spans a large physical distance.

The Internet is the largest WAN, spanning the Earth.

A WAN is a geographically-dispersed collection of LANs. A network device called a router connects LANs to a WAN. In IP networking, the router maintains both a LAN address and a WAN address


IMG_0833
Akash was just an AWESOME!! 🙂 

IMG_0825Here mehul was come again to provide more information about WAN (Internet) and how it works by giving them a examples.

Finally coding for program has been completed, we have wrote one program named myschool.html, in that we have tested all the tags and finally we have set the redirection to their schools original website. To check whether its working or not, We have called one Girl from the audience and asked her to click on the name called Swami Narayan School on which redirection has been setup, when she clicked on that name, the page was redirected to School’s main website i.e. Shri Swaminarayan English Medium School

Provide them a detailed information about all the tools, but here we have less time left so I have focused more on Webmaker Thimble tool and provide them a practical demonstration of the tool by creating one page for their school. You can see it on below image.

IMG_0922Students were very happy to saw this tool and they also wants to learn others tool as well but as we have less time to left as per our commitments as students summer classes are going on the school and after the day pass they all have summer holidays stated so they been very excited about it.
